He was elevated to the Elite Panel of ICC Umpires in 2015 and became the second Indian umpire after Srinivasaraghavan Venkataraghavan ever to be a member of the Elite panel.[4] He was selected as one of the twenty umpires to stand in matches during the 2015 Cricket World Cup.[5] In a tight IPL 2019 game that went down to the wire with Royal Challengers Bangalore needing seven to win off the last ball, Mumbai Indians' Lasith Malinga ended up overstepping which was not picked by the on-field umpire S Ravi. He was highly criticized by both the captains.[6]

In April 2019, he was named as one of the sixteen umpires to stand in matches during the 2019 Cricket World Cup.[7][8] S Ravi, after a string of below average umpiring decisions in International Matches was unanimously decided to be dropped from the Elite Panel after the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. He shall leave the Panel with Mr. Ian Gould, who is set to retire
